Lou Dobbs Goes Off in Rare Break from Trump Admin: POTUS Has Kept His Promises… Except on Border Security

Lou Dobbs‘ frustration with the Trump administration on border security continued tonight, with the Fox Business host saying this is the one issue President Donald Trump has yet to keep his promise on.

He revealed he spoke to DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen––who he said should be fired last week––and said they had a “very straightforward and pleasant talk.”

“I have to say she sounded to me as though she were impeded by the system that she is working in rather than overcoming it,” Dobbs said. “And I can’t honestly judge how much is her fault and how much is not, but I do know this––that that government is not moving with urgency at all.”

Ed Rollins said Nielsen needs to be tough and “crack the whip” to implement the policy Trump has talked about.

As for POTUS, Dobbs said the following:

“This president in every respect, and foreign policy and domestic policy, you name it, this president made promises and 2016 and he delivers. Promises made, promises kept. Except when it comes to illegal immigration and when it comes to border security. And that is a horrible worsening vulnerability for this president, a glaring electoral burden facing 2020. I think that’s the reality of the politics and the reality is that this nation is in jeopardy every day that that border remains open and I don’t give a damn what the Chamber of Commerce says.”
